Description : During the course of constitutional and political reforms in Central and Eastern Europe a whole-scale reform of public administration the creation of a professional civil service has also been tackled. This requires a clear sense of the objectives to be achieved by the administration; and the provision of adequate resources to perform the tasks of publicadministration. In addition, and perhaps most importantly of all, there must be a sound legal basis for public administration.This book examines administrative law and institutions in a series of case studies in Central and Eastern Europe.
Description : Most of the European countries are confronted with health care system reforms. In Central and Eastern Europe, however, the countries face specific challenges. Whereas "socialist" governments traditionally have been deeply involved in all facets of health care, the general process of initiated market-oriented reforms has also affected the nature and scope of government intervention in health care. Stimulated by the successes of concepts such as decentralisation, deregulation, and privatisation in order to create a more flexible market economy, policy-makers also began to apply such notions to the health care sector. The experiences in the early 1990s however, revealed certain devastating effects of transposing the general concept of market competition to the field of health care. One valuable lesson of those developments was that liberalising relations in health care necessitates a certain degree of government intervention. Furthermore, the nature and scope of Central and Eastem European health care reforms differed from country to country with no uniform "blueprint" for reform, derived from emulating Western European experiences, being readily available. Nevertheless, previous experiences in reforming health care may provide us with valuable lessons. Their significanee needs, nonetheless, to be reviewed in accordance with specific national setting.
Description : The recent developments in central and eastern Europe have changed the political landscape of the world. The dissolution of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia, the collapse of Communism in Europe, market reforms, and the processes of democratisation are all seminal events affecting not only the countries in transition but other states as well. All these changes presuppose fundamental legal reforms. In this process most of the countries in transition have adopted new constitutions where issues of participation in the international political order and questions of international law enjoy a prominent place. This book is one outcome of many research activities concerning these transitions in central and eastern Europe at the Centre of European Law, King's College London. It contains essays about constitutional reforms and international law by leading international judges and academics. It is edited by Mads Andenas, Director of the Centre of European Law at King's College London, Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Reader in International Law at Queen Mary and Westfield College, London, and Rein Müllerson, Professor in International Law at King's College.

Description : During the last years of its life the Soviet Union turned to law like a dying monarch to his withered God. Its successor, the Russian Federation, has adopted the same posture. In public discourse the phrases civil society and law-governed state have acquired hortatory force, the judges are bidden by law to wear robes, and the Congress and the Supreme Soviet enact and amend statutes with the fervor of one who sees in legislation the path to paradise. (Bernard Rudden, Civil Society and Civil Law, The Revival of Private Law in Central and Eastern Europe.) Somewhat less dramatically, perhaps, the picture is repeated throughout the rest of the post-communist constituency.
Description : Even though the development of competition law in the countries of the former Eastern bloc has been based to a significant extent on arrangements existing in the European Union - including the case law of European courts and various instruments developed by the European Commission - numerous substantial differences remain both in regulatory regimes and in ongoing practice among the various countries. This first-ever practical survey of competition law in this region describes applicable regimes in sixteen of these countries, with additional country chapters on Austria and Turkey and a chapter on the role of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
Description : "The focus of Arbitration Law and Practice in Central and Eastern Europe is to provide an understanding of the involvement of state authority in arbitrations and offer practical ideas on arbitration procedures for countries in this region. Adopting a questionnaire format devised by the editors, issues are investigated from both the arbitrator's and the counsel's perspectives and important tactical issues are discussed. It is inevitable, however, that the reader may occasionally be disappointed to find an unanswered question. The editors, authors and contributors ask for patience as the reader tries to find specific answers to questions which would not have been posed ten years ago. Case law is generally sparse in these countries, legal reforms are recent, and therefore the legal writing is limited and does not cover the entire array of questions that may arise. The book is an indispensable reference and guide for arbitrators and party representatives who are engaged in arbitrations in the region."--Publisher's website.
Description : Introduction to insolvency laws of CEE countries The first contact with foreign insolvency laws is in most cases as unpleasant as sudden. And even if local bankruptcy counsel has been retained, many questions remain unanswered and it is frequently difficult to put the information coming from the foreign insolvency lawyer in proper perspective. This compilation, which has been prepared by lawyers practicing in the area of insolvency law at the Wolf Theiss offices in the countries covered by this book, is an attempt to bridge this information gap. It is intended to serve as a quick reference tool for business managers, in-house counsel, lawyers in general practice and other professionals who need to familiarize themselves quickly with some of the most practice-relevant features of the insolvency laws of one or more of the following countries: Albania, Austria, Bosnia/Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Kosovo, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. Moreover, this book may be useful to lawyers familiar with insolvency matters in their own jurisdiction, who are looking for a convenient introduction into foreign insolvency laws. The practical focus of this book and its emphasis on restructuring-related topics is underscored by a contribution of Alvarez & Marsal, a global turnaround and forensic advisory firm.
